The view from the hidden ledge

Seasonal Raptor Closures for access issues: please review cragvt.org

Description 

A ledge located above Beginner's Luck which currently contains one line in the center of the ledge. Excellent morning sun as it is entirely above the treeline.

It isn't really "hidden" in that it is hard to find as it can be plainly seen from Chockstone or the top of Fresh Meat and Paradox but it has remained dormant through 3 decades of development at Upper West.

Getting There 

1. Climb Beginner's Luck.

2. Climb Rented Mule and climb over the anchors.

3. Climb Fresh Meat and traverse left.

4. Climb Paradox and traverse left.

A very awesome pitch with two variations.Start at the toe of the arête and make your way up to the roof. V1: Traverse right and up under the roof on thinning holds until you can power up to the money jugs. V2: Direct: after the second bolt, find an undercling and clip a high bolt on the left. Then make powerful core-intensive moves straight up to the money jugs.A tricky mantel leads to 15 feet of easy terrain and a stance.
